Healthy Living | Removing Toxins For Better Health


We can eat well, exercise, stay hydrated and get enough sleep to put us on the road to good health. But there are all kinds of toxins and pollutants that we come in contact every day, which can jeopardize our bodies and lead to all kinds of scary illnesses. While we will never be able to fully avoid all contaminants, there are a few ways to avoid these as much as possible.

Drink Filtered Water

Most tap water is contaminated with a variety of pollutants that increase your risk of serious health problems. There are traces of over the counter drugs, to arsenic to aluminum. This has been linked to learning difficulties in children, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease and digestive problems. Berkey water filter test results have more findings on the types of harmful extras tap water can include. Regular tap water also contains fluoride which has been linked to a whole host of problems. It’s worth reading up about this and educating yourself so you’re able to make an informed decision. Since a large proportion of bottled water is actually just tap water, the best thing you can do is invest in a water filter at home. It’s more economical, and you know you’re getting rid of any harmful extras.

Use an Air Purifier

Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, and incredibly inside pollutant levels can be up to one hundred times higher than outdoors! Things like household cleaning products, mould, tobacco smoke, pets, asbestos, carbon monoxide and many more things can contribute to this. These indoor air pollutants can result in wide range of health effects. Symptoms can be immediate or long term, and range from mild to fatal. Allergy and asthma will be first to be affected, but these things are damaging to everyone’s health. They could be doing you some serious harm without you even realizing. Air purifiers remove smoke, pet dander, pollen, and even chemicals. They’re usually designed to clean one room, so if you’re just investing in the one then choose the room you spend the most time in. It’s impossible to completely eliminate all of the toxic chemicals we’re subjected to. But at least this way you can take steps to protect yourself as much as possible.

Eat Organic Produce

Food that has been sprayed with pesticides and genetically modified introduces a wide range of dangerous chemicals into the body. It’s better for the earth and better for your health, and so spending a little extra buying organic is always worth it for better health.

Use Natural Cosmetics and Beauty Products

Our skin is an organ, and the chemicals applied externally can be absorbed and make their way into the bloodstream. So the products you apply should be as safe and chemical free as possible. Opting for brands that make natural and organic products are an excellent choice. At the very least, make sure you avoid things like parabens, mineral oils, petroleum and sodium Laureth sulphate (SLS). These are common additives in beauty products which have been shown to have harmful effects on the body. Lots of brands are getting on board with more natural products these days, and so it’s not difficult to make the switch.
